Can We Play Music?

Yes, we have equipment onsite so you can play your favourite tunes. There is also a sound limit and we have neighbours in close proximity, so the volume is more than enough to have a great party, but not enough to wake the dead.

What AV Equipment is Included?

We have a sound system and microphone onsite for you to use. Anything else will have to be hired in. We can recommend trusted suppliers if necessary.

Can We Decorate Ourselves?

You can customise Loyal Hope however you would like, providing that any existing decor is not damaged in the process. No nails, screws or glue may be used. Any onsite furniture that is removed has to be replaced at the end of the event or the next morning by arrangement.

Timings?

As we have neighbours in close proximity all events must conclude by 11pm on Friday and Saturday nights, 10pm otherwise. The standard running times are 5.5 hours for the reception with another hour beforehand for an onsite ceremony. For Friday and Saturday nights timings are as follows… 4.30pm Guest Arrival, 5pm Ceremony, 5.30pm-11pm Reception. Additional time can be organised, please ask us for details.

How Does Setting Up and Packing Down Work?

Access time is normally arranged depending on the amount of set-up required and whether we have an event the previous night. Upon arrival the venue will be set with our onsite furniture and accessories. You can re-arrange if desired, or add your own touches.

Hotels Nearby?

The Calille is only two minutes walk from the venue, otherwise the Sage, Tryp, Alex Perry, Alpha or Rydges Hotels are all close by. Otherwise we’re only 5 minutes from the city via taxi.
